"I like reading your quick daily thoughts on the state of our hobby.
Today's post caused me to to think of over abundance and how we live with it.
I have a much more modest collection of music (about 400 LPs and 600 CD/SACDs). Recently, as I looked at all of the music on my shelves, I thought of my son-in-law who loves LPs but has a very modest collection. So, I culled out 60 LPs and 25 CDs and sent them off as a surprise package - he was thrilled.
I often read how we we want to get others involved in our hobby, maybe we have to get them started at the beginning, where we started---with the music, not the equipment."
I couldn't agree more. What have you done lately to bring someone else into the fold?
